A short book created to describe the intonation system of Norwegian music being "bound" to the natural wind instrument, the seljefoyta, or willow flute. It was written by Eivind Groven.

Published in 1927 by Norsk folkekulturs forlag, Skien

Written in Norwegian

This is an extremely valuable resource for those wishing to understand indigenous European music prior to the introduction of Pythagorean tuning in the early Middle Ages and the impetus of what is now equal temperament.

Notes Although most musicians are aware that the harmonic series (also known as the natural scale) is responsible for triadic harmony and the drive to make the diatonic scale equally tempered, most are not aware that the natural scale has a melodic function as well. In this book, Eivind Groven discusses the willow flute (seljefloyta) and its melodic function and influence on intonation of Norwegian folk music. This subject is also discussed in The Celtic Lyre (new edition, 2012 only), published by Siol Cultural Enterprises, ISBN: 978-0-9869659-6-8.
